I am a clinical psychologist offering long- and short-term psychotherapy to adults, children and families who are experiencing emotional, psychological or relationship difficulties, or who simply want to embark on a journey of personal growth.
My approach to therapy is holistic, meaning that we should always keep physical, mental, social and spiritual factors in mind. I work from a variety of therapeutic perspectives – including psychodynamic, narrative, cognitive behavioural (CBT) and play therapy – and tailor my approach to each client’s needs.
I assist clients to manage the following concerns:
- Depression, anxiety and other mood disorders
- Trauma (eg exposure to violence or sexual abuse)
- Loss and bereavement
- Personal growth and existential issues
- Sexual and gender identity dilemmas
- Intellectual disabilities
In addition to the above, child and family therapy also covers:
- Managing ADHD
- Behavioural difficulties
- Autism spectrum disorders
- Cognitive and emotional assessments
- Parenting sessions
I am fully bilingual, and offer therapy in both English and Afrikaans.
I earned a Clinical Masters degree at the University of Stellenbosch and a Masters degree in Psychological Research at the University of Cape Town, and have spent the past seven years enriching my practice as a therapist by remaining involved in community work, research and academia.
